Five Common Foolish Reasons for Not Buying a Book at the Newberry Library Book Fair
1. My wife/husband will kill me. (So hold the book in front of your heart when you go home.)
2. I don’t have time to read the books I have already. (I don’t care if you read it; just BUY it.)
3.If I buy one more book the floor will cave in. (In the current market, it should be easy enough to buy the apartment below yours and stack books there.)
4. I’m afraid I’ll get home and find out I already have a copy. (If you liked it the first time, you won’t like it this time?)
5. I want it, but I’m not sure I can justify the expense. (Why don’t you run down the street and think it over while drinking a six dollar cup of coffee?)
